PSL Issue Statement On Suspension Of Play-Offs

The Premier Soccer League has finally broken it’s silence on the saga surrounding the play-offs having seen Royal AM granted an interdict last night.

Shawn Mkhize, the club president, boasted on social media that she had been able to halt the games that were meant to determine who gets promoted to the DStv Premiership and which team joins Black Leopards in the lower leagues.

After the high court had ruled at the weekend that Sekhukhune United be crowned champions of the GladAfrica Championship by way of having the Hilton Epstein award enforced by the league, the PSL almost immediately released the fixture list.

Chippa United and Richards Bay would join Royal AM in the play-offs, and the first game between the latter clubs had been scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.

That hasn’t happened, and the league has since confirmed the matches were stopped via a court interdict, though the PSL is seeking “urgent relief” given the June 30 timeline when player contracts expire.

 

The league issued the following statement:

The Executive Committee of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) today resolved to urgently seek leave to appeal against the order handed down by the Honourable Mr Acting Judge Nyathi of the Gauteng High Court on the evening of Monday 14 June 2021. 
Acting Judge Nyathi interdicted the end of season promotion/relegation play-offs that were due to commence at 15h00 on 15 June 2021. 
The PSL has been compelled to seek urgent relief as the last day of the official season is the 30th of June 2021. Many player contracts terminate on that date and any further delay in completing the play-offs places the start of the 2021/22 season at risk.
